We all went out to dinner at our favorite Indian restaurant while the President and Sister Thomas were up north eating dry chicken with Elder Ellis…

Mission home tanks (1)

These are the two tanks that feed all the homes and office in the Mission home complex. Elder Atkinson created an ingenious tool to tell how much water we have in the tanks: see the water bottle? There is another in the tank, attached to a string. When the water is low, the bottle in the tank is low, so the bottle outside the tank is high (you can see we are empty!)

However, when the tanks are filled, the water bottle in the tank is high, so the bottle outside the tank is near the bottom (these tanks are now full, and should last us 3-4 days, if people don’t waste the water).
